So Big Navi is (according to AMD's own benchmarks) better than current gen RTX in most games, uses less power and costs less (but still almost 1000 bucks).

It completely blows my mind that people still waste obscene amounts of money on GPUs these days. There hasn't been an intensely graphically demanding PC game that's actually good for well over a decade now.

Not only that, people PREORDER graphic cards instead of waiting for benchmarks.

Just because you are excessively nostalgic for your childhood doesn't mean everyone is

Good luck 4K gaming on previous gen GPUs.

Get hype! Can't pass up the opportunity to see all the money this AAA shitheap wasted on polygons instead of gameplay!

Your post and that picture are peak /v/ermin.

Anyway, I don't care much for GPUs either because the games I use are shittily optimized and dependent on CPU.

It's gotten so expensive people now buy individual parts on credit.

If you have a 'top of the line' something then there's people that will buy it. I mean just look at rolexes and shit. Wow they tell the time just like my watch that cost £10. But the owner gets to brag about their expensive garbage so that's good enough for them.

Honestly I'm only interested in the low/medium range. That and the hope that this will lower the price of previous gens. My 950 is starting to show the sign of time, plus lately the nvidia drivers for linux are shit

Haven't they always been? I always see novideo giving Linux users (and developers) a headache, and to top it off their drivers are proprietary, which is BIG CRINGE if you ask me.

I've actually been having serious issues with Nvidia on my Linux due to driver madness. Between the lack of hw stock and this fuckery I am leaning extremely heavily towards AMD gpu for my new build (running a 10yo box rn). I just hope their drivers are up to snuff and that they actually have stock.

I'm also stuck with nvidia on Linux (I'd still dual linux boot with amd anyway because I'm too lazy to sandbox everything properly) and afaik amd drivers are as good if not better than on winblows. Last I checked the FineWine™ meme was real and they took some time to become really good, though even a valve employee publicly shamed nvidia a few months ago and recommended amd over them for linux use (https://twitter.com/dan_ginsburg/status/1261403868279140353)

They used to be always loaded at boot instead of not working one third of the time
